Hyatt has announced plans for a new 800-room Grand Hyatt property, located next to the Miami Beach Convention Center.
The hotel is scheduled to open in 2023, and will be connected to the recently renovated convention centre by an elevated skybridge.
The 17-storey property will offer 12 floors of guest rooms, two floors of meeting and events space, “a resort-style pool deck with panoramic views”, and ground level retail space.
Plans for the project also include landscaped pedestrian promenades on surrounding streets, bike sharing stations, dedicated ridesharing pick-up and drop-off zones, and “connectivity with public transit routes”.
The Grand Hyatt Miami Beach will join the Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay as the second hotel under the brand in Florida.
Last year it was announced that the 1,298-room Grand Hyatt New York is set to be demolished and replaced by a new mixed use tower comprising office and retail space, as well as a new, smaller Grand Hyatt property.
Hyatt recently confirmed plans to open over 20 luxury properties this year, including Grand Hyatt hotels in Kuwait, Nashville and Gurgaon.
Commenting on the news David Tarr, senior vice president, development, Americas, Hyatt, said:
“At Hyatt, we believe in growing with intent and expanding our footprint in markets that matter most to our guests and World of Hyatt members. Hyatt is proud to play an integral role in this project as hotel operator, under the luxury Grand Hyatt brand, which will help guests and locals alike celebrate the iconic, captivating city of Miami Beach.”
